    PvP finishing

    I have a hybrid trapsin (lightning traps + kicker). I'm able to do pretty well in most PvP situations with this build. If they use high lightning resist/absorb so that my traps do no damage, I use kicks. Open Wounds does an excellent job of reducing my opponents health to very low.

    Now, the hard part is finishing them off. I can often get them down to 1 health by landing a series of kicks and then running around. But against necros in particular, I can never seem to finish them off. It seems like I land several kicks when they have 1 health but do not get the kill. I tried to MB them which was also inneffective.

    1. Do any of these attacks goes through bone armor?
    2. Does open wounds kill the opponent? (it seems like no)
    3. Is putting a point in dflight for this situation viable?
    4. Any other ideas on how to get that last point of damage?

    You should always have a point in d.flight imo :) it won't break through bone armor. You might need a higher skill level mind blast to finish off if you can't dent them, but since magic damage is only resistable through magical damage reduction (yes and those 'godly' safety shields) they usually won't survive a lot of magical damage at 1 hp :drool:

    i have around lvl 16 MB [10 base] and ai am able to finish most chars if they have 1 hp. also you can try to cast a shadow master right on top of them to trigger a nova death, and that might kill them :p

    IMO MB does the job pretty well

    Mb

    So if MB is all physical damage and you're fighting a necro, doesn't bone armor absorb the damage? I think it would be very hard to get MB to do more damage than bone armor (syns from all other necro skills pvpers have)
